Microsoft's 2017 Surface Pro goes a whopping $360 off list today only with a keyboard included
The fifth-generation Surface Pro received a minor spec bump a couple of months ago, looking pretty much as hot as always at a more reasonable than ever starting price. For just 24 hours, you can purchase the entry-level Intel Core m3 configuration in a special keyboard bundle at only $599 from Best Buy.
That’s a whopping 360 bucks off the combined list price of the LJJ-00001 model of the 2017 Microsoft Surface Pro and platinum Surface Pro Signature Type Cover. The tablet alone costs $749 right now at its manufacturer’s official US e-store, while this exact same bundle on special offer through Best Buy is listed as out of stock at a $909 price.
Your 600 bucks will obviously not get you the world’s most powerful detachable tablet/laptop hybrid, but 4GB RAM and 128 gigs of internal storage space should be plenty for some decent multitasking, as well as a robust combination of productivity and entertainment use cases.
The Surface Pro 5 naturally comes with a speedy solid state drive, as well as a sharp 12.3-inch PixelSense display with 2736 x 1824 resolution and a 3:2 aspect ratio, up to 13.5 hours of battery life in continuous video playback, a respectable 8MP rear-facing camera, 5MP front shooter with Windows Hello support, a headphone jack, and Dolby Audio Premium-enhanced stereo speakers.
The only major flaw is a modest 7th Gen Intel Core m3 processor, but at $599, that’s really not the greatest inconvenience in the world.
